A Card from Carol

Here is a card that Carol made last night whilst watching 'Kirsty & Phil' on Location, Location, etc.... and we thought that you might like to see what she does in her spare time?
'Emma's Flower'
Carol used one of our flower stamps called 'Emma's Flower' and kept the theme to simple black & white; the flowerheads are decoupaged with Diamond glitter glue in the centres and the dashes are free-hand using a Fineliner Pen.
Good enough for Steve to take to shows?
If we receive lots of favourable comments then we may get some more please write in!
Happy weekend, the sun has been shining here all afternoon - gorgeous!

Inbetween Shows

We just want to say a big thank you to all the lovely customers who visited our stand at the Sunderland show yesterday, Steve was kept busy and he met lots of new customers.
Carol packing up February's club packs
We are busy packing for our next show which is at Exeter this Thurs, Fri & Sat and here at Little Claire we are busy sending out our club packs for February.  Here is a pic of Carol taken today while she is in the middle of processing all of our club packs, she is sitting in our stock room and you can see that she bagged the window seat!   Although the weather is so gloomy these days, we need all the light we can get. 
We are sending out the packs now because Steve has the Visa Terminal after tomorrow for the Exeter show.

Carol is who you will most likely speak to when you phone in and she is the most sensible of all of us: she keeps Steve in check and amongst her many roles she can also be found washing the dishes and feeding the cats!
(look closely at the pic and you may be able to see the new pack for February!)
Best wishes
Little Claire Team xxx

New 'Room with a View' stamp sets!

 Here's a sneaky little preview of the new stamp sets that Steve will be demonstrating on Create & Craft tomorrow at 11am

There are four  'Room with a View' sets available:
Dog in a Window, Cat in a Window, Wedding & Christening

 Each of the sets can be made into cards featuring little doors and windows that open to reveal a view beyond. We love them because you can make so many variations with just one stamp set; you can have the window or door closed or open to show the view or you can have just the view on it's own. The view acts as a good 'stopper' on easel cards and don't forget, each set has text included!


  Lots more card examples to be seen on our website tomorrow and of course Steve will be showing the sets in more detail tomorrow on live tv!!
'Room with a View' - you can't help but touch!! xx

Hi everyone!
A few cards here from our lovely design team showing January's Club stamp 'Dog in Window' from our new range of 'A Room with a View' stamps.

We just love the way you can open the little windows on these cards and peep inside!

Steve will be demonstrating this and 3 other brand new stamps from the Room with a View range on Create and Craft, Wednesday 12th January at 11am (hopefully he will have recovered from his man flu by then!). We will certainly be glued to the TV and hope you'll all be able to tune in aswell.

 We have lots more images on our gallery - too many to show them all on here!

 That's all for now........xx

Just thought I would share this lovely card example with you all. It was sent in by customer Marianne Fisher and features our 'Blissful' stamp, which is one of our all time favourites.
Thanks Marianne!
